Hobby: Women 





Here is a man who believes, with some other 
great men, that the pen is mightier than the sword 
and that flowing ink is more effective than hot air. 
We are half inclined to trust in his methods. He 
doesn't make much noisy noise but he gets there 
just the same. He has been the chief instrument 
in the resurrection and drafting of more consti- 
tutions and by-laws than any other man in school 
and he has held some of the highest offices that 
student organizations command. 

Alvah has lately taken to continuous fussing 
and it is reported that he has often been seen com-

Hobby: Canoeing 









Heine, the Chem. Shark, hails from the City 
of Opportunity and his hobby is canoeing. Op- 
portunity and canoes mean about the same thing. 
Heine — why repeat yourself? 

Heine has a queer combination of seriousness 
and jolly good nature. His laugh makes you laugh 
with him. He and Bruner laughing would make 
anyone laugh in sympathy. 

Heine has lots of push and pep. He is a mem- 
ber of both the Physics and the Chem. Clubs and 
is President of the latter. He never bothers with 
"stuff" like poetry — he leaves that to the women. 
But when he speaks of canoeing we wonder 
whether maybe Heine might not like poetry, too.

Here we have the only man who has ever 
majored for a solid year in Campustry and then 
become a confirmed misogynist. The why and the 
wherefore of it all is inexplicable, but after hav- 
ing helped to hold down the front steps of Buch- 
tel Hall for a whole year, he suddenly turned from 
his worship of the fair and embraced the intellec- 
tual pleasures of literature. Now he may be dis- 
covered almost any evening sitting back in a deep 
leather chair with an old French Briar between 
his teeth, delving into the mysteries of ancient 
Pagan religious rites, The Dabistan, modern plays 
or American short stories. 

Bob started in at the Engineering School; but, 
finding that he could not learn to chew tobacco, he 
came up to the Arts College and — somehow — man- 
aged to retain his peculiar faculty for passing up 
work without classifying in it. 
Bob has developed a peculiar process of intake and exhaust which be- 
comes audible when he is much pleased. Perhaps, some day, when you 
are in a strange place, you may happen to hear a noise that sounds like 
a donkey taking his morning vocal exercise. If you do, you can turn 
around and fully expect to see — our old friend and student — Bob 
Bordner.

Behold a paradox! Here, for once, the fiery 
temper that is ordinarily connected with flaming 
locks is missing. He has upset every rule of na- 
ture. Warren is of such a retiring nature that 
''Daddy" Egbert didn't know him after having him 
in class for a year. Red looks a little wild but he 
is really mild when thoroughly known. 

Warren G. never overexerts himself except 
when il comes to fleecing the freshmen. As a 
chem. handbook and slide rule magnate he can't 
be beaten. But was his work all in vain? We 
have never seen him use his double-action-triple- 
compound slipstick. Perhaps there is a reason. 
As a student he never was one to warm the cockles 
of Dean Spanton's heart. He is an outstanding 
example of the efficiency of silence, especially 
when it comes to using Yeast Foam in chemistry 
experiments. A mild-tempered red-head. 

What a Paradox! What a Paradox!

Hobby: Motors — Any Kind 





Harold has a spontaneous laugh, lots of school 
spirit and just enough aggressiveness about him to 
produce the proper effect. He is a likable chap 
withal; not too studious, yet always getting by; 
not a lounge lizzard, yet quite at home in a dress 
suit. When he was football manager he was not 
above putting on muddy moleskins and scrapping 
with the varsity. 

Harold rose to fame when he became Capt. of 
the B. O. T. C. in 1920. As a modern Napoleon, 
marshalling his fish club across the campus, he 
knew no fear. We believe he slept with an I. D. B. 
under his pillow.

Fran's hobby is working in the Biology Lab. 
She was Fox's only rival while she was here. We 
are sorry to say that Frances left us in her last 
year — she couldn't go deep enough into the study 
of Biological specimens here — so she went to a 
hospital in Cleveland to work with raw material. 

Frances is a chronic secretary, having been sec- 
retary of four different organizations on the 
campus. Some say shr is preparing for a life sec- 
retaryship to a well-known Buchtelite. She threw 
a fit because last year's Tel-Buch announced her 
engagement before she threw her party. Now 
she's called the party off.

Marie Louise, Mimi, is Akron University's own 
French girl and a Parisienne besides. Before she 
came to Akron, we had all sorts of ideas about 
French girls, but Mimi has upset them all. Where 
we expected to find a vamping, winking, shimmer- 
ing, shrinking doll with eyes like saucers and 
cheeks as red as the first bud that peeks from our 
buttonhole on May-day, we find instead a real, 
honest-to-goodness human being, as much Ameri- 
can as any of us, and one who has turned out to 
be a loyal Buchtelite. 

Mimi leaves us this year to do what she wants 
most to do — to go back to Paris. Next years she 
hopes to study at the Sorbonne in Paris and then 
— who knows — we may expect to see her on our 
own campus as a teacher of French.

Stan plugged through the line in football and 
won his letter for three years. He has been the old 
reliable that Coach Sefton fell back on when the 
more spectacular dude broke his neck. Stan ex- 
hibits the same plugging, straight-forward attitude 
toward everything he attempts — steady and sure. 

When the college orchestra started, Stan was 
the first man to tickle the ivories. But when some- 
one suggested wearing dress suits Stan said, "I 
give up the ship."

Hark ye! Here before you is the king of story 
tellers. Nowhere among the famous knights and 
ladies of our castle on the hill will you find such 
a teller of tales. Whisperings are abroad doubt- 
ing the veracity of certain of these stories. But 
the prestige of this mighty teller of talcs who 
hails from a country far to the north of us — a 
whole hour by the red steed which gallops on an 
iron roadway — is so great and he brings so many 
others of his clan with him that we of milder tem- 
perament never question the verity of his mighty 
ballads. 

Diet is a long, narrow, quiet and dignified En-

on Professor Boger's courses.

Pennsylvania Line. Since then he has been on 
every part of the job, even to holding a red flag 
at the crossings. He "knows his dope." We will 
hear of Bob in big things later. 

Bob is not always the Engineer. He debates, 
hunts rabbits, and presides over the Board of 
Control. It is in the serious, hard work that Bob 
truly shines. He does not rush the fair frails, and 
swears by the bowl of his strongest briar pipe that 
the masculinity of the Engineers' Halls should 
never be violated by powdered, gigglin' foolish^

Hobby: Reading High Brow Literature 




Rosalind — the very name recalls to us the work 
of Shakespeare. It has a fleeting sense of romance 
about it and a suggestion of thought and reason, of 
study and research for knowledge. There is a 
lightness about it, too, that takes away the feeling 
of dryness which comes from all study and no 
play. This is our Rosalind. In her there is the old 
passion for learning which we read of in the time 
of Shakespeare, the passion that was the Renais- 
sance. 

She is one of the kind of students that Dean 
Spanton would like everyone to be. We don't 
know why, but Rosalind majored in Home Eco- 
nomics. Maybe she knew too much Lit. to bother 
with the courses our profs, have to offer. 

Where do you find Rosalind? Go over to the 
Library any afternoon and you'll see her buried in 
a novel or a drama, it may be in English, German 
or Erench. If you don't find her there, look for Luise Kraus. Doc Plow- 
man called them the "Pair Inseparable."

Hcbby: Fussing 




King of Engineering fussers and a strong rival 
in this line of Musser's, our Arts School expert. 
For his size, Foster is a big man among the ladies. 

He hails from Pearl River, N. Y., and has not 
always been at Akron U. Fossy seems to have 
exhausted two hunting grounds, R. P. I. and Lafay- 
ette, each of which lasted only a year with this 
shark. Here's a compliment for you, girls : he has 
stayed here for three years. 

His favorite pastime is writing the word "Hy- 
draulics" for Dean Ayer — which he successfully 
did — only 500 times. 

George is now attempting to design better truck 

for the I. H. C. We hope he continues his good 

work after leaving us but we can not blame him 

if he diverges from the "straight and narrow 

path" long enough to complete the working plans which will be checked 

and O. K.'d by the little girl in Jamestown, N. Y.

thenticity of a persistent rumor. More wild tales 
start from his fertile mind and active tongue than 
from any six others in school. The impossible has 
no place in Fox's line. He is the master of them all 
in his chosen field. 

Next to starting a baseless rumor his chief de- 
light is in a dissected specimen in biology labora- 
tory. It is rumored — "Straight from Fox" — that 
he has a cat ranch in Kenmore which is run for 
him by his old friend, the barkeep of the Green 
Turtle. 

Fox is an enthusiast. Everything he does is done 
to the limit of his ability. His gravity never fal- 
ters, his seriousness in the midst of wild rumors is 
astonishing — he almost makes himself believe his 
weird tales. 
Founder of both Biology Club and the local chapter of * 5, Doc Fox 
has taken biology and medicine as his life work. And, oh, what an M. D. 
he will make!

Like Heine, he belongs to both Cbem. and 
Physics Clubs and is President of the latter. It 
lakes lots of self confidence and ability to keep up 
with such a program. But Grift is one of House- 
holder's cronies — and delights in burying himself 
in formulas and problems too deep for the ordi- 
nary human being. 

He is a good student, quiet at times and with a 
touch of Dieterich's art in his make-up which es- 
capes frequently. Griff is dry and witty — he tells 
funnier stories but he hasn't the breadth of im- 
agination that Diet has. 

Griff is the original woman hater — can't see a 
thing in women and dances — but that may be 
caused by the company he keeps. 

You'll fall sooner or later, Griff — the later the 
harder.

Hcbby: Making Money 




Meet the manager of the University Profiteria; 
the man who, when you pass the threshold of the 
college bookstore, reaches out through the "bars" 
for your money and says to himself, "grab it." 
And he does grab it. When he added a stock of 
candy, peanuts and jewelry to his stock of books, 
the University went bankrupt. And to think — ev- 
eryone blamed it on the war — Ugh! Besides — 
sssh — the bookstore is some little depository for 
scandal. Even Marie speaks to him only in 
French. 

Earl has for some time been a side-kick to Pro- 
fessor Howe in the English Dept. Perhaps that is 
where he obtained the extraordinary vocabulary 
that helped him, as attorney for the plaintiff, to 
win the case — Denison vs Williams — in American 
Government. 

Last summer Earl followed the advice of Horace Greeley, only to find 
that pitchforks and chiggers were uninviting, so he returned early and 
became a pitcher in the Epworth League.

Isa, as "Alvina Darling," was quite the char-

an audience, or anyone for that matter, sit up and 
take notice, she is there. Her elocution is superb. 
And her eyes — ah, those eyes — how she can roll 
them! Equipped with all the qualifications that 
go to make up a "reg'lar" woman, it seems sad 
indeed that, to her, "Man" should be only a term 
defined by Webster. 

As Editor of the Retort, she has proved her ability 
as a writer, and collector of chemical news and 
jokes. Rut, just as a joke we are inclined to think 
that some of her fellow students in chemistry 
don't take her seriously enough. 

Has anyone seen Isa Keck (Kick) ?

As a wide-awake, active pusher of Akron U, 
Luise is surpassed by no other woman — or man

have traded for a year for the sake of Luise. 

Luise is a side-kick to Rosalind and the two 
together certainly make up an intellectual pair. 
Some think, however, that Luise has gone bugs 
this last semester for she persists in working over- 
time in Bacteriology Lab. Rosalind maintains that 
this commendable habit is only one of the more evi- 
dent outward manifestations of her scholarly at- 
titude. We cannot vouch for that — but think! — 
those eyes, her voice, a perfect wonder when it 
comes to the application of scientific methods in 
home economics and then — think — to waste so 
much of her time growing bugs!

Hobby: Whistling 




Emmer does love to talk — and whistle. And 
we must admit that with the host of words at his 
command and the ideas he has to express it would 
be folly to be silent. He is not satisfied with the 
College Debating Team alone and he is going to 
law school where he can use his talent to the best 
advantage. Then — if Emmer ever gets on the 
wrong side of our case — well — "we're done for," 
that's' all. 

The cinder path is one of Emmer's favorite 
haunts. When he starts in a race he throws off all 
anchorage. He loves to watch his opponent's feet 
for a while and then ask "What's the matter, big 
boy? 'Fraid to stretch your muscles?" Then, at 
the end of the stretch, he scoots ahead and pro- 
ceeds to kick ashes in his gasping opponent's face. 
That's what you call a dirty trick; but at the end 

Emmer will be heard whistling. And when Emmer starts his warbler 

even the birds sit up and take notice.

Harold — Kid Cosmo — has as yet failed to grow

firm believer that "line" will do anything, he 
seems to have been successful. He is a steady 
talker, but says little. He is rather witty because 
he has a good memory. There you have a mental 
picture of Harold. 

Kid Cosmo went to the University of Pennsyl- 
vania for a year, but a certain resident of Adolph 
Avenue — at the time this is written she lives there 
—brought him back to his Alma Mater. 

It nearly broke Harold's heart because the fac- 
ulty censored his "Punch Bowl" jokes in the Buch- 
telite and because he never could get "Fish" to 
help edit the "Spider," a yellow scandal sheet of 
college activities. He did get out "Social Silhou- 
ettes," however. 

Harold's terribly lucky — he's graduating with his class.

Cheerful, obliging, iniposed-upon Mary — her 
smile never fails. Even Par. Law, rough as it 
treated her, brought no complaint. 

Professor DeLeone has torn his hair more than 
once because he could not stage "Mary, Queen of 
Scots" and cast Mary Mac as Queen Elizabeth. 
When you look back of Mary's calm and smiling 
countenance you will find a world of ready wit 
and pleasantry. 

A true gentlewoman, and one we are proud to

"Sphinx." The only one of his kind in exis-

Because of his eccentricities Raymond was a 
good subject for experimentation in "Daddy" 
Olin's psychology class. The class had hopes of 
uncovering some of the present-day genealogical 
mysteries but after continued efforts had to give 
them up because Raymond could not be made to 
talk about himself. Naturally everyone was 
agreeably surprised when "Sphinx" came out of 
his hole and proved that he was a gifted orator 
when the Senior Ashton Prize contest was staged. 

"Sphinx's chief work, however, has been in the

Helen is another student of the type the Dean

Some think that Helen has been studying in the

School instead of Buchtel College. Helen's silence 
is not to be misjudged. Although she is known to 
us as the smiling assistant in the Library, it seems 
that some young man in Cleveland has a great

At any rate, we congratulate you on many

Hobby: Bein' Friends 





Some men are the fortunate possessors of such 
a likeable disposition that they can claim all as 
friends. And if anyone qualifies, "Lamps" surely 
does. Of calm, even temperament, he never was 
known to rise in his wrath as do most of us. 

Perhaps, though, it is because his thoughts are 
far away, that he passes over lesser troubles. At 
any rate, the day is brighter when the mail man 
brings a pale blue envelope with a California post- 
mark and a tiny "E. B." in the corner. It's a long 
Irip, "Bill." 

Track and tennis are "Bill's" sports — he gets a 
nice trip to Columbus every year when he goes to 
the Big Six meet. The rest of the year he spends 
his time in front of the fire at the fraternity house 
and builds castles in the flames.

Raising anything that grows or 
don't grow — i. e.: Moustaches. 




Here is the living example of a bookworm come 
to life. The fact that Bob is a bookworm is not 
to be held against him, for he has accumulated a 
store of queer knowledge that would put Houdini 
and Omar K. M. both in the shade. 

Bob has a number of accomplishments. He 
drives a Ford coupe; he was in Sefton's awkward 
squad when the Student Battalion was first 
formed; he has a highly cultivated appreciation 
for good literature and he has the most original 
and striking ideas concerning natural phenomena 
of anyone on the campus. He has been charac- 
terized as a queer genius and the funniest duckling 
in class. 

Dreaming is Bob's favorite pastime, but he 
never dreamed of shaving until his senior year, 
when someone gave him a razor for Christmas. 
Today the razor is as good as new. 

There are one or two other things that we should say about Bob, viz. : 
he has a faculty for drawing grades of 100% on Physics tests, and, the 
better you know him the better you realize what you've missed by not 
knowing him sooner.

and no play makes the world a helluva place to 
live in. But be likes to hook both play and work 
together. Even when he's playing tennis he im- 
agines he's batting molecules around. We can't 
blame him then for being a little wild once in a 
while. Perhaps that explains his hobby! Anyone 
with such an intrinsic aptitude for imagining the

Hazel's ability lies along literary lines. It was 
she who put life and size into the Literature Club 
by her open and direct methods. 

Her hobby is bluffing profs and traffic cops —

what he does himself as what he gets done.

Hobby: Studying — Human Nature 




Yes, the first quotation above just fits Peggy. 
This is her fourth year in Campustry Club, of 
which she certainly is the honorary if not the ac- 
tual president. Her long experience at the work, 
her great success in keeping a club together, rec- 
ommend her for the leadership. She aims high 
— nothing less than Presidents will do! 

Peggy has majored in Romance Languages with 
an idea of teaching, but, strange to say, she wants 
to teach poetry now. We would suggest that 
Peggy teach French and Spanish in school — for 
she will have plenty of opportunity to teach 
poetry (Browning in particular) outside. 

But Peggy's friends are not all men — oh, no in- 
deed. The girl with many men friends is usually 
disliked a little by other girls, but Peg, our orig- 
inal little Sunshine Girl, is such an all-around good 
sport that she is as popular with the girls as with the men. 

That fact proves her success — she is liked by everyone. We will miss 
her, with her many smiles and friendly remarks.

This is the smaller of the two Eddies. Though 
smaller, this one is as hard as nails. No wonder — 
he comes from two notable places: 

1. The same place as Diet. 

2. The same school. 

In plain English, he is from Ravenna and is an 
Engineer. 

Eddie is a great little fusser — hence Ravenna 
claims him in more ways than one, for he is a 
consistent "one-girl man." 

Eddie is captain of the Scrap-iron Trio — and 
is some scrapper. He fought two years to land a 
berth on the basketball team and he landed it, too. 
We think of Eddie and Bill Knowlton as two of 
the best scrappers in school. Keep on scrapping,

Hobby: Collecting old and new coins

"Fuzzy" is another one of those few students 
who possess the great gift of silence that makes 
them all but understandable. She expresses her 
approval with an eye that shows a deep love of na- 
ture, but when the traffic cops stop her, or her 
motor stalls — no — she has never been heard to ut- 
ter a word that was in the least malicious. 

Coins have an extreme interest for "Fuzzy."' In 
fact, she is a collector of coins — not the sort of a 
collector who gathers rusty, prehistoric coins at 
the expense of good money but one who is very 
successful in collecting those that are new and 
shiny. 

May some of the rest of us learn some of her 
methods.

Web came to us from Davidson College, N. C, 
and in his quiet, congenial way proceeded to make 
friends out of everyone on the campus. His first 
public appearance was made in chapel when he 
walked away with the big medal in the Senior

on the platform, all that we can do is listen. 
That's all we want to do for he is an impersonator 
deluxe and sways us to tears, or sets us cackling 
like a bunch of hens at a tea party, as he sees fit. 

Literature is Web's strong point and when not

Here is a model young man, an earnest, diligent 
student and the pride of his neighborhood. There 
is only one thing we hold against him, he is gifted 
with a silver voice that persists in cracking, but 
his other qualifications easily obscure this minor 
defect and he seems to have formed a habit of 
spouting at banquets. At least when we want to 
hear a good toast we call upon Jimmy. 

Since Jimmy has abandoned the immediate ma- 
ternal influence of his Alma Mater he has certainly 
become a cutter. This is confidential — he has be- 
come a bridge fiend. Credit to him — with "hon- 
ors" in one hand and a law book in the other he 
has maintained the high standard of scholarship 
and character at Western Reserve which he had 
when he attended Akron U.

Here is the man who, more than any other in 
school, helped to put Akron U on the map in the 
Athletic field. Eddie is a four-sport, twelve-letter 
man. Modest and unassuming, he always runs 
true to form. Always calm, never excited even 
in the most trying times, he has pulled many a 
game out of the fire and brought home the bacon 
lor our Alma Mater. 

Wherever Eddie is known he is respected as a 
gentleman and a true sport. Is it any wonder that 
he has been booked already? 

For further information, see newspapers and 
former Tel-Buchs.

Hobby: Athletics 





Louise is a regular good fellow, fond of all ac- 
tive sports and fondest of bluffing profs. Perhaps 
she is bluffing all of us, for she is one of Miss Stim- 
mel's pupils and her preparation fits her for other 
work than teaching. 

Louise is best known for her success in manag- 
ing feeds for the teams during football season. 
Whether we meet defeat or victory on the field it 
is toward Louise and her able crew that the teams 
look after the game is over. And it is her man- 
agement that they have to thank when they leave 
the gym with a full stomach and a happy smile. 

It is rather strange, but in the last year Louise 
has acquired a taste for poetry. Perhaps she has 
been influenced by Peg — she spends a great deal 
of time with her.

"Tubby" Wilson, Lounge Lizzard deluxe; yet 
one without the tame cat propensities! 

Many a fair maid considers her evening com- 
plete if she has danced with "Tubby." He is co- 
originator of the "Toddle," disseminator of big 
college spirit, and one of the most popular men in 
school. 

"Tubby" deserted Akron U. for Colgate, but, 
growing tired of tooth-brush drills, he returned to 
his Alma Mater, where his little Ford coupe soon 
blocked the driveway. 

As a musician is the only place he falls down. 
He persists that O-Keh records are music and in- 
sists upon distributing them among the fair sex. 

Studies never bothered "Tubby" very much — 
in fact, nothing ever did. A cheerful, good-na- 
tured sort of chap — it is no wonder that we will 
miss him.

Ravenna claims the prodigy of our class. 

Quiet and unassuming, he surprised everyone, 
himself included, by being elected to Phi Sigma 
Alpha, honorary fraternity, in his senior year. To 
have achieved this measure of success is no small 
honor, and his recognition is but just. 

In his freshman year, Warner was a chem shark 
of note and seemed doomed to a life of solutions 
and precipitates. But sophomore year found him 
spending hour after hour in the library with his 
nose buried in a stack of books. 

It is as a student that we must remember him, 
because the success that he made in his studies 
overshadows everything else that he has done. 
And, to be hailed as the high man of such a class 
as this, is no small honor. 

Congratulations, Warner!

In JxLemoriam 




Parke Harlon Myers 

Parke Myers is gone, but his memory will for- 
ever remain in the minds of those who knew 
him. The Angel of Death walked among us, 
and he of the golden hair, the laughing eyes and 
pleasant voice was called — Home! So sud- 
denly, so swiftly did Fate move that we were 
stunned beyond comprehension. Just now are 
we beginning to realize our great loss. 

An ardent student, a willing worker, a loyal 
friend, a true gentleman was Parke. As a mem- 
ber of various organizations, in numerous school 
offices and on the several athletic squads he 
served equally well. Behind his success, what- 
ever the line, was his winning personality, his 
gentlemanly conduct. It is these characteristics 
that make his memory golden and his place so 
hard to fill.

Foothall Season of 1920 



Although the Akron University gridiron machine of 
1920 did not measure up to the successful season that was 
prophesied for the school at the opening of the year, no 
one would say that the showing made by the squad was 
the result of any one cause. Looking back over the sea- 
son, several factors must be taken into consideration be^ 
fore criticism can be rendered from any source. 

In the first place, when Sefton called the roll for the 
first practice, he found that he had lost nine letter men of 
last year's squad. Only four men who had played college 
football remained and it was around them that Sefton 
was forced to build a team. A wealth of material 
made up of green and inexperienced men donned the 
moleskins and al though the team started well and gave a 
good account of itself in the easier games played early in 
the season, it became apparent as the season progressed 
that the team was not up to the standard and was too in- 
experienced to withstand the heavy Conference schedule. 

Although the team did not win a majority of the Con- 
ference games, it must be conceded that it did face a diffn 
cult proposition at the outset and that it gave its best for 
the school, gaining thereby valuable experience that 
should stand them well when the next season opens. 

The first game of the season was played with Defiance, 
a non-Conference team. The visitors were no match for 
the Akron U aggregation as the team had little ditiiculty 
in running up a score of 51 to 0. The following week-end 
saw the defeat of Reserve on their home ground. Out- 
weighed nearly twenty pounds to a man and relying on 
brains and speed, Akron downed their opponents and fin- 






182 




ished the game on the long end of a 13 to score. In the 
third game of the season, the Blue and Gold routed the 
Berea boys to the tune of 21 to 0. 

Not being able to forestall the old Case hoodoo that the 
Cleveland aggregation can yearly invade Akron with a 
weak team and either beat or tie the Akron team, the 
Blue and Gold warriors started for the showers with the 
short end of a 7 to score. The first accident of its kind 
that has ever befallen an Akron player was witnessed at 
the beginning of the third quarter when Al Ulrich was 
taken off the field with a broken leg. 

Mt. Union proved to be a mountain which the Akron 
U gridders were unable to move, the result being that 
Akron suffered its second defeat of the season on the visi- 
tors' field. According to tradition it was the Alliance 
team's turn in victory, as the two schools have been swap- 
ping defeats for the past few years. The Akron team was 
completely outplayed by the Casey-coached men and be- 
fore the final whistle Mt. Union piled up a score of 26 to 0. 

After staggering under two successive defeats, Akron's 
football squad came from behind and defeated the Hiram 
warriors by a seven-point margin, the final score being 
14 to 7. 

In holding Wooster to a 14 to score, the Blue and Gold 
team succeeded in accomplishing a feat equaled by no 
other school during the 1920 season. The Boles men had 
tallied three scores in every game they had played, but 
the opinion was unanimous that they were exceedingly 
lucky to tally twice against Akron. The Akron men for- 
got old scores and played a brand of football in keeping 
with their former records. An accident marred the other- 
wise good day when Stew Shafer, playing halfback, was 
taken from the field with a broken collarbone. 






183 



.**?■ 








184 




The final game of the season, the week-end following 
the Wooster game, was played against Ohio University at 
Athens. The Akron team showed complete reversal of 
the form shown in the Wooster game, due, no doubt, to 
lack of practice. During the entire week preceding the 
game weather conditions were such that practice on the 
field was next to impossible, making it necessary to give 
short workouts in the gym. The Akron team was com- 
pletely outplayed by the Ohio U team which scored at 
will. The result was that the Blue and Gold team suffered 
the most complete defeat in years, the score being 39 to 0. 




J I 



THE TEAM 



Captain "Red" Daum 

"Red" proved to be one of the most capable field gen- 
erals of the Conference and probably one of the most con- 
sistent players that Akron fans have seen for a number of 
years. When it came to picking off forward passes, "Red" 
was just about as near perfect as they make 'em. R was 
nothing unusual for this man to reach up into space and 
snag the pigskin without losing a step. "Red" will be with 
Akron U again next year and is sure of making an even 
greater name for himself in football history. 

Herman Eckert 

When it comes to showing the opposition their place 
none is better fitted than Captain-elect Eckert. "Griz" 
was a mountain of strength on the 1920 combination and 
his reputation as a hard-charging tackle won for him 
much favorable comment from the Blue and Gold fol- 
lowers. With three years' experience in college football, 
"Griz" will no doubt give a good account of himself as 
Captain of next year's team. 




<£r X- 



185 







Edward P. Wentz 

This big, lanky fellow plays a remarkable game at cen- 
ter. Ed played his last year in college football this year, 
and although he did not play full time, he always man- 
aged to give a good account of himself in some part of the 
big scrap. The long boy is too valuable a man in basket- 
ball to have any injury lay him up. Eddie always keeps 
the cool, level-headed fighting spirit. 

Stanford C. Close 

Here is another man who had a most delightful habit of 
grabbing off forward passes. With plenty of weight and 
brawn in reserve, "Stan" rushed hard and cut down men 
with a regularity that did not go unnoticed by the usually 
near-sighted gallery. He will not hold down the wing 
position next year for he leaves the University after hav- 
ing served the Blue and Gold teams for three years. 

Carl D. Wert 

"Dick" was a valuable man to have around and ably 
filled the center and guard positions when called upon to 
do so. Early in the season Dick got a hard bump on the 
knee which kept him from taking part in a majority of 
games. However, Wert will be on duty again next year 
and he intends to make up for what he lost during the 
1920 season. 

Clarence Bliley 

Although not as heavy as some of the other backfield 
men, "Ching" proved to be a born football man and 
filled the quarter and halfback positions to everybody's 
satisfaction. Bliley piloted the team the greater part of 
the season and it was in this capacity that he has shown 
his ability with the pigskin. He has yet two years to play 
on the varsity and should easily win for himself a berth 
on the All-Ohio. 

Clande V. Emmons 
By persistent effort and hard work, Emmons landed a 



186 




position on the squad. He is a hard and fast runner and 
his work on the defense would be hard to beat. Had he 
known his ability as a football player before, he would 
undoubtedly have been seen in the moleskins in former 
years, but Emmons graduates in June and consequently 
will not hold down the halfback job any longer. 

Carl P. Leffler 

Though almost a midget, "Spec" proved to be an excel- 
lent open field runner and netted the squad not a few 
yards of enemy territory. Leffler intends to be on hand 
when Coach calls the football roll again next year and 
will undoubtedly again put into practice that fighting 
spirit which is characteristic of "Spec." 

George Whalen 

When this big, rangy chap got started there was no 
stopping him. "George" held down a guard position and 
his general all-around playing gave him a place on the 
Sefton-coached aggregation. He will no doubt be used to 
advantage next fall. 

Robert Ellis 

Coach Sefton found this heavy giant a good bet in the 
tight places, and when called upon Ellis always helped to 
rip up the visitors. Give this chap enough to work off a 
bit of the surplus fat and he will make the boys step for 
a steady job next fall. 




Albert Ulrich 

"Al" was playing a great game at half and showed signs 
of developing into a valuable man for this position when 
he was injured in the Case game. Coming down the field 
under a punt, at the beginning of the third quarter, Ul- 
rich was tackled by two Case men. The result of the play 
was disastrous for the Akron team for "Al" was carried 
off the field with a broken leg, probably never to return 
in a football uniform. 



187 



Stuart Shafer 

"Stew" received his first serious injury in college foot^ 
ball while playing fullback in the Wooster game. He had 
been substituting at various positions in the backfield 
during the entire season and was found to be a capable 
player and a good teamworker. With this year's -experi- 
ence, Shafer no doubt will make himself known in the 
Akron U backfield next year.

Baskethall Season of 1921 

Before the whistle which was to open the 1921 basketball season 
had blown, it was conceded by all collegiate basketball followers 
that there would be a merry scrap for the championship flag of the 
Ohio Conference. The outlook for strong teams throughout the state 
was very promising as some schools had as high as four and five of last 
3'ear's first squad out for practice. Akron ranked high from a pre-sea- 
son standpoint because of the fact that three members of the 1920 cham- 
pionship team would perform again this year. The guard position, left 
vacant by the graduation of Bocdickcr, was capably filled by Thorpe, a 
substitute of the past three years. The center position then was the real 
problem that Coach Sefton had to solve before Akron could successfully 
compete with the stronger teams which were scheduled for the latter 
part of the season. Among the possibilities for this position were Will- 
yard, Langer and Smith. Willyard, however, graduated in January, 
leaving the latter two candidates to compete for the pivot job. Shortly 
after the Cincinnati trip, Langer left school and the major part of the 
work was carried on by Smith with the assistance of Darrah, who 
donned the basketball logs for the first time in his life and showed that 
he was made of the stuff that makes good basketball players. 

The season opened with an easy victory over Baldwin-Wallace in 
the gymnasium January 7. Following the first victory Defiance, Be- 
serve, Case and Hiram were defeated with little difficulty and hopes 
for another championship team were running high. Then, Wooster, 
an old enemy and a keen rival of the Blue and Gold in every line of 
sports, invaded Akron and nearly blasted the championship hopes, but 
the old pep saved the day. 

The Wooster fracas was followed by the Wittenberg game at Spring- 
field. The Lutherans and the unfamiliarity with the large Memorial 
Hall floor proved to be too much for the Akron U team which finished 
on the short end of the score for the fifth time in the last five years. 

The week-end of February 19 found the squad playing in the extreme 



190 



southern part of the state where defeats were handed to both Cincinnati 
and Miami. On February 21, after the sojourn in the south, the Blue 
and Gold boys dropped another game to Wittenberg by an eleven point 
margin, before the largest crowd ever assembled in Crouse gymnasium. 
The remaining three games with Wooster, Kenyon and Case were won 
with comparative ease and the Akron University basketball season of 
1921 came to an end. 

The pre-season prophecies made that no conference team would com- 
plete the season without a defeat were well founded. The champion- 
ship flag was won by the Ohio University team which played nine 
games and lost one. Oberlin followed in second place by winning six 
and losing one, and Akron copped third place by wnning nine and 
losing two. 

With the passing of the 1921 season another bright spot is added 
to Akron basketball history. The record is one that no other Ohio 
college has attained during the past five years. Out of sixty-six games 
played only six were lost. 



Captain Eddie Wentz 
(Left Forward) 

Because of his previous record as a basketball player, Capt. Wentz 
was a marked man during the entire season. In spite of this fact 
Eddie succeeded in breaking away and scored 215 points during the 
1921 season. During his three years of conference basketball he scored 
661 points. He was a member of the All-Ohio for the 1919 and 1920 
seasons and besides being given honorable mention for the 1921 sea- 
son by all Ohio coaches, he was considered the most valuable man to 
his team of any man in the conference. Besides being a valuable man in 
basketball, Eddie plays football, baseball, and is a track man. In losing 
this athlete, Coach Sefton is losing one of the best all-round men that 
has ever entered Akron University. 

191 




Carl Daum 
(Right Guard) 

Few people know Daum by his first name for it is always "Red." 
This was "Red's" second year in college basketball and he is considered 
one of the premier guards of the Ohio Conference. This season he held 
his man down to 1.2 baskets per game and for the entire season he 
scored from the field the same number goals registered by his opposing 
forwards. "Red" will be captain of next year's team and will undoubt- 
edly set a pace and be the leader that any man will want to follow. 



Bill Knowlton 

(Rigid Forward) 

Bill is the third member of the Knowlton quartet and has made a 
very good contribution to the history already made by this family at 
Akron University. He stepped into college basketball for the first time 
last year and performed in fine style. This year he was even better 
and played a remarkable floor game due to the fact that the word 
"quit" is unknown to him. When Bill graduates this June, Coach 
Sefton will have lost one of the best fighters he has had in years. 



Ed Thorpe 
(Left Guard) 

The fourth member of the team is Ed Thorpe better known on the 
tloor as "Ed." For years he traveled with the team as a substitute and 
when called upon this year to fill the guard position he stepped into 
the game with the same calmness and serenity as an old vet. "Ed" 
proved to be a capable running mate for Daum and held his man to 
two baskets per game for the entire season. 



192 




Spike Smith 
(Center) 

This long lanky fellow came to Akron from out of the East. "Spike" 
was a new man at center and needed considerable basketball expe- 
rience to be classed with the other members of the squad. However, 
he gave the best that he was capable of giving and gained a wealth 
of basketball knowledge that will be of invaluable use to him next year. 



THE SECOND TEAM 

The second team must not be forgotten while the laurels are being 
distributed to the regulars for they used to beat the varsity once in a 
while and they are the boys that took the greater part of the hard bumps. 
It was due to their hard and consistent practice that the first team was 
able to make the showing that it did. So don't forget the work of 
Myers, Bliley, Darrah, Rowley, and Frank Knowlton.

1921 varsity Baseoall Season 

In contrast with the baseball season of last year, which was not a 
very great success due to the remodeling of Buchtel Field, the 1921 sea-' 
son is starting out with prospects which point to the development of a 
successful nine. With a number of veterans back on the diamond and 
a wealth of new material which is being rapidly worked into shape 
to fill the vacancies left by last year's graduation, Coach Sefton is de- 
veloping a team that should win a majority, if not all, of the nine games 
scheduled. 

The main difficulty, however, is a lack of material for duty in the box. 
At the opening of the season four pitchers reported for mound duty, but 
at the present time it seems as though the majority of the work will be 
done by Thornbury and Ellis. It is hardly necessary to say anything in 
praise of the rest of the team, for with such men as Wentz, Bliley, Jor- 
dan and St. John in the infield and Close, Snyder and Lancaster in the 
gardens, there is little possibility of a visiting player crossing the home 
plate. Daum, assisted by Smith and Long, will do the receiving. With 
such a line-up, the Akron University baseball team should finish the 
season with a high standing in the Ohio Conference race.

The 1921 Track Season 

At the opening of the 1921 track season, Coach Sefton faced the 
problem of developing a strong squad with a very small nucleus of 
veterans. That the season has not so far been the success that was 
looked for, has been due to the fact that the Coach was compelled to 
devote the major portion of his time to basketball and is now com- 
pletely absorbed in the development of a winning baseball team. How- 
ever, in spite of this misfortune, some real track men are being de- 
veloped and no doubt some excellent records will be made before the 
season is completed. 

Barnes is one of the best men on the squad, and should his work in 
the future progress as it has since his entrance into Akron U., he will 
probably be the greatest track man this University has ever had. Barnes 
runs the half-mile and mile. In the indoor meet with Beserve and the 
meet with Case and Wooster, he had little difficulty in taking firsts. 
The Big Six meet should give him further opportunity to show what he 
is capable of doing under a real test. 

Other men who have been doing good work on the cinder path are 
Capt. Bowley, Hilbish, Emmons, F. Knowlton, Darrah and Lancaster. 
The shot is being handled by Ellis, Olsen, and Huffman, while Colley 
and Barnes take care of the javelin. Hill is hurdling and Buch is 
running the four-forty yard dash. 

The season opened with an indoor meet with Beserve in the latter's 
gymnasium. Although the meet resulted in a loss for the Akron team, 
it served to give some of the new men their collegiate baptism in this 
form of college activity. Other meets held with Case and Wooster 
likewise resulted in defeats for the Akron U. squad.

Buchtel Field 

Akron University must measure its strength in all lines of college ac- 
tivity. Besides providing adequate facilities for the intellectual educa- 
tion of the students, it is necessary that the University should provide fa- 
cilities adequate for the physical development of every student. Plans 
for the attainment of this duty have been formulated and are being car- 
ried out as rapidly as financial conditions will permit. 

Included in these plans is that for the rebuilding of Buchtel Field. 
It calls for the enlargement of the field, the construction of a reinforced 
concrete grandstand, the regrading of the entire field, the construction of 
two football fields, a baseball diamond, and tennis courts. To complete 
these improvements will require the expenditure of approximately one 
hundred thousand dollars. 

Of this sum, sixty thousand dollars have already been appropriated. 
Work on the new field was started in the spring of 1920 and has pro- 
gressed in such a manner that the greater portion of the plan has already 
been completed. By the purchase of additional land the size of the field 
has been increased by about one-fourth of the original, a new drainage 
system has been laid, the field has been regraded, and the football and 
baseball fields have been laid out. One section of the grandstand is now 
being constructed, and the remaining sections will be built as soon as the 
money is available. 

The unsightly board fence, so common to most athletic fields, has been 
eliminated by the construction of an up-to-date one of wire. Besides be- 
ing a decided improvement to the field, the fence is an asset to the com- 
munity in which the field lies. 

When the rebuilding of Buchtel Field is completed, the students of the 
University of Akron will be able to boast of an athletic field that is sec- 
ond to none in any Ohio Conference school. Then a new gymnasium 
will be the next step in the completion of the athletic expansion program.

The series of informals of the past year have heen exceptionally 
successful. The success has been due to the large attendance of alumni, 
faculty and students. These affairs have been the meeting ground 
for all college groups, and their popularity indicates in some degree 
the college spirit. Various members of the faculty chaperoned the 
dances. 

The dance committee takes this opportunity to thank all those who 
have so loyally supported these college affairs and who have helped to 
make them such an integral part of college life.

GLEE CLUBS 

With the addition of Professor DeLeone to our faculty, and the conse- 
quent forming of our glee clubs and orchestra, music has become a real 
part of our school life. 

The glee clubs now number over sixty men and women who are at- 
tending practise faithfully and doing excellent work. 

The Akron University Glee Clubs and Orchestra in conjunction with 
Mr. Umberto Sorrentino, the great Italian tenor, and Mr. J. Garfield 
Chapman, violinist, have already given a successful concert which served 
to put Akron University on the map in music. Plans are being made for 
another concert this spring. A similar plan will be followed — some great 
arfist will be procured to work with our glee clubs and orchestra, prob- 
ably in the production of a few choice acts from Grand Opera. 

The orchestra is as great a success as the glee clubs. Those who were 
here before its formation and are still here know the vast gain in interest 
in our chapel exercises since its existence. Chapel hour is no longer a 
period to be dreaded but one to look forward to. There is a new pep and 
spirit about our school which is plainly a result of the coming of music 
to the campus of old Buchtel. 

Professor DeLeone is optimistic as to the future. He says that the 
spirit is excellent and that combined with it is plenty of real talent. He 
looks forward to a growing musical organization and hopes that in a 
few years we may have a musical department in which voice, violin, and 
special study of all kinds may be taken up.

The Buchtelite has shown thruout the last year, what 
a great good a student publication can do towards pro- 
moting school spirit, pushing those things which are for 
the best interest of the school, and providing an outlet 
for student talent. 

The publication has passed thru its last year under its 
old constitution. Tho this year has been a very success- 
ful one, the staff was hampered by the limitations under 
which it worked. To remedy these conditions, the English 
department and the Student Council co-operated with the 
staff to produce a new constitution which would meet the 
new needs of greater Akron University. This constitution 
was voted on and accepted by the student body in the 
spring elections. 

In the future the Buchtelite will be run on a different 
plan which will insure, it is hoped, an even better paper.

The Gold Digger 

"Here's something queer," said the dentist. "You say this tooth has 
never been worked on before, but I find small flakes of gold on my in- 
strument." 

"I think you have struck my back collar button," moaned Hollie — 
Siren. 



At Welker's

An engaged girl will press a man's trousers from eight 
till eleven every night, and after they are married she 
won't press 'em for love or money.

car to a beautiful girl, but somehow beautiful girls seem 
to have other means of conveyance.

is on a modern bottle of liquor. 



Do You Know Your Own School?

Dr. Plowman is the inventor of Biology. 

Coach Sefton is the first coach we ever had that wasn't rough on the 
boys. 

Miss Findlay doesn't mind if you talk in the Library if you keep your

Hez Simmons is the inventor of the 101 Proof, now being invented over 
in the chem. lab. 

Fred Nestelle and his troupe of fleet-footed janitors once had soap and 
towels in Buchtel Hall. 

Dean Ayer does not smoke cigarettes all the time. He sleeps eight 
hours every day. 

We firmly believe that any man who can stay at the University for 
four years without being killed or badly injured by a dray, automobile, 
or street car is well deserving of a diploma whether he passes any courses 
or not. 



"I hear Howdy was arrested for 
being too full." 

"Yes, he was so full we had to bail 
him out." 



"Mother, may I a-riding go?" 

"Yes, my sweet Lucille, 

"But give your friend this sound 

advice: 
"Keep one hand on the wheel."

vite you to call again? 

Stan — Nope; he dared me to. 

Harpy — Have you made up your 
mind to stay in? 

Ethel — No. I've made up my face 
to go out. 

Hitchcock — Why are the prices 
lower for the seats in the gallery? 

Ticket Seller — Because they're 
higher. 




Weber (passionately) — Darling, I have a secret to whisper into your 
ears — where are they? 

Now He's Initiated 

Don Darrah — You want to keep your eyes open around here todav. 
Knif— What for? 

Because people would think you are a damn fool if you go around with 
them shut. — Pelican. 



Fuzzy Was He? 

Haas — That new mustache of yours is a sight. 
Howe — Don't knock a mustache when it's down.

No, George tta, if a man prof married a lady prof you wouldn't call 
their children prophets. 

Dr. Plowman on Neurology — What are the sensations of the vestibule? 
Margaret W. (stamping her foot) — I refuse to answer such a personal 
question. 

After looking over the new spring styles, Red Damn has decided to be- 
come a ladies' tailor. 

Plowman — What is the meaning of vortex? 

Morganstern — Oh, I know. It's the extra cent on ice cream and movies.

"Ah dunno," replied the Ethiopian swain, "unless it's because de less 
light, de mo' liberty." — Pelican.

Necessity is the mother of invention, but it must have been the daugh- 
ter who gave the world the lipstick. 

"FIRE DESTROYS BARN AND STOCK."— News Item. 
How many quarts? Too bad. 

"I'll have to raise your rent," said the landlord. 

"You will, eh?" sneered the tenant. "Well, suppose I refuse to pay it. 
What'll be your next move then?" 

"The next move, in that case," said the landlord, "will be yours." 

Ladies first — it gives a fellow something to look forward to. 

Cheer up, co-eds. Even a lightning rod is attractive in its own way. 

Some people insist there's nothing like being in on the ground floor, 
whiie_olhers these days are satisfied with the cellar. 



The Professor 

The Professor throws his shoulders back and straightens out his tie, 
And says, "My friends, unless it rains the weather will be dry." 
And when this thought into our brains has percolated through, 
We common people nod our heads and loudly cry, "How true!" 

The Professor blows his massive nose and clears his august throat, 
And says, "The ship will never sink so long as it's afloat." 
Whereat we roll our solemn eyes, applaud with main and might, 
And slap each other on the back, the while we say "He's right." 

The Professor waxes stern and warm, his drone becomes a roar, 
He yells, "I say to you, my friends, that two and two make four." 
And thereupon our doubts dissolve, our fears are put to rout, 
And we agree that here's a man who knows what he's about. 

Howe — You say this theme is entirely the result of your own efforts? 
Fox — Absolutely, sir. I spent two days finding somebody who had it 
written up. 

Nellie — I see the referee penalized the team 10 yards because Eddie 
was holding. 

Sophie — What a shame! I warned him last night to keep his mind on 
the game. 

Prophetic 

Dean Spanton — What is there to substantiate the opinion that Shakes- 
peare was a prophet? 

Van Hyning — He was foretelling the era of home brew when he wrote 
the receipt for Witches' Broth in "Macbeth."

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN : I cheerfully recommend my old girl 
to any young man wanting a suitable dating companion for next year. 

She is a good dancer physically and morally. 

She is a good looker. 

She is a good listener. 

She isn't too good. 

She is an excellent pedestrian, in fact, she will always say she likes to 
walk, although she is not prejudiced against a car. 

She is a woman of deep emotions whom only you will be able to thrill. 

She has, to the best of my knowledge, absolutely no ideas of her own 
on any subject, except you. 

My sole and simole reason for quitting her is that I am leaving school. 
Treat her right. She likes to be treated. 

At the Prom 

She sat alone. 

The bright decorations of the gym brought out the delicate texture of 
her skin. Her soft brown hair was like the shimmering waves of the 
ocean, her eyes as blue as the azure sky. Every line of her evening gown 
spelled class and refinement. Surely she must be one of the 400. 

Would this exquisite piece of femininity dance with him? Hesitating- 
ly he approached her and bowing low asked for the dance. 

Coldly she surveyed him and then in a voice that sounded like the 
musical ripple of a brook she answered, "Naw! I'll dance wid th' guy 
what brung me." 

There's an awful difference between the girl who is kittenish and the 
one who is cattv. 



It's sometimes bad taste to kiss a girl who uses a lipstick. 

Grab 'Em Young 

If you love me, tay tow, 
If you don't love me, tay tow; 
If you love me, tweeze my hand, 
Rut don't keep me titting on dese told teps 
All night long. I'll freeze to deff. 
Damit. 



Olson (to dentist) — Say, there's something the matter with that fdling 
you put in my back tooth last week. Every time I hit it with my knife it 
pains me. 

How Rude 

"Don't kiss me, please!" sweet Mary cried, 

"It isn't customary." 
And the, oh, then, you should have heard 

That fellow cus-to-Mary! 



253 




254 




Did You Ever? 

A famous philosopher has said that nothing is impossible. But did 
you ever try — 

To get a date with Peg Washburn. 

To talk in the library. 

To shoot craps in Buchtel Hall. 

To keep a clean shirt in Akron. 

To get in the gym on the night of a big game. 

To wash your hands in any of the college buildings. 

To fill your fountain pen with ink in the office. 

To go swimming in our swimming pool. 

To reduce. 

To look innocent while cutting. 

To find out what a woman is thinking about. 

To understand calculus. 

To study in a fraternity house. 

To get a piece of candy at the book store for nothing. 

To get rough with an engineer. 

To get one of Sharer's lessons. 

To get a seat in a street car and keep it away from a standing woman. 

To find how some guys get such grades. 

To pass physics. 

To make Plesofsky keep notices off the bulletin board. 

To break up a session in the men's smoking room in Engineering 
College. 

To make more noise than Dieterich. 

To stop McJoynt from talking on methods. 

To get Joy without Bliss. 

To figure Bed Kregenow's haircut. 

To use Pussyfoot's gestures. 

To find Maxine Leland without Musser. 

To try to argue with Prof. Crecraft. 

To figure Jenkins' drag. 

At the Prom 
"I can't give away any more dances, my girl has a sore foot." 
"But you have been dancing with her all evening." 
"That's all right, I know which one it is." — Froth. 

Start a Pawn Shop 

"I see Carney has another new car." 

"Yeh, he can afford it. He goes to every Prom you know — " 

"Uh huh." 

"And always parks his boat right outside the gym door." 

"Yeh." 

"Well, he told me that last Prom he swept up four vanity bags, a cou- 
ple of fat wallets, a wrist watch and a quart of miscellaneous jewelry 
from his back seat." — Tiger.

One, Two and Out 
One — Do you know that girl over there? 
Two— No. 

One — Didn't think so. 
Two— Why? 
One — She looks like a nice girl. — Jester. 

And Give Higher Marks 
"'They say that the prof's ought to have higher salaries." 
"Who say?" 
"The profs." — Record. 

No Room 
Mary — Jack said he always kept me in mind. 
Ann — Are you used to such cramped quarters, dear? — Jack o' Lantern.

you were first struck by my beauty?

Editor — Did you ever read proof?

it?— Ex. 



Bad Luck 

"When I was coming home last 
night I saw a man skulking along 
in the shadows," said Marguerite at 
the dinner table. "Oh, how I ran!" 

"And couldn't you catch him?" 
asked her kid brother naively. — 
Punch Bowl. 



"You said you would die for me." 
"Yes, dearest." 

"Then why couldn't I drive your 
car last night?"

chemistry, physics, botany, zoology and bacteriology furnish a basis for 
specialized work in the chemistry and preparation of food sanitation, dietetics, 
etc. 

THE COLLEGE FOR TEACHERS 

Offers courses to prepare teachers for either grade school or high school posi- 
tions. Conducted jointly by the University and the Board of Education. Offers 
to students all the advantages of the various departments of the University and, 
for practise work, the resources of the Akron public school system. 

THE DEPABTMENT OF MUNICIPAL CO-OPEBATION 

This department is not, strictly speaking, a teaching unit of the University. 
It does, however, give advanced students opportunity to enter practically into 
the activities of city work, such as chemical, physical, and bacteriological 
testing for various city departments, all of which is done by the University, 
also into sociological work in connection with the City Board of Health and 
the Charity organizations. 

THE EVENING CLASSES

every department of the institution. 

Address President P. R. KOLBE or 

Secretary C. R. OLIN, for Information

m 



The two-story building in Akron, 
on the site of the present Goodrich 
factories, was part of the nucleus of 
the industry itself as it now exists. 
At that time fewpersonsever dream- 
ed what the industry could become. 
Electricity was undeveloped. 
Transportation was in its infancy. 
The automobile and motor truck 
were unborn. The combination of 
circ.umstances which brought about 
the greatest industrial era of the 
world was virtually unseen. 



Radiating from that small factory 
and small organization of half a 
century ago, Goodrich has built a 
city! Not alone the huge city of 
brick and stone and steel which 
houses the great plant in Akron — 
but a city which comprises the 
entire Goodrich organization every- 
where in the world. 

The opening of the second half 
century of the organization finds it 
just as earnestly building its city in 
the esteem and regard of the public,
